South Fork Mokelumne River

It was a gorgeous day for a paddle on the Delta Monday. A bit on the warm side but being on the cool water was the best place to be. We launched from Wimpy's Marina at the end of the low tide and paddled south on glassy water.

We paddled downstream past Beaver Slough almost 5 miles in less than 1.5 hours. I noticed lots of birds including many hawks, killdeer, egrets, heron and I think I spotted a few sandhill cranes. I was able to positively identify two long-billed curlew which are not seen often in the Delta.

We turned around with the tide and headed back to Wimpy's where we enjoyed a tasty lunch.

Wimpy's charges $5 to launch a kayak. After unloading your kayak drive back up levy and park close to the road as not to block parking for restaurant customers.
